In attempting to upgrade Red Hat V7.0, kernel 2.2, to kernel 2.4, I have managed to 'tar' util-linux-2.10o.tar.gz (per the "changes" file).
Next step, as I understand it, is to:
1. cd to /util-linux-2.10o
2. type './configure'.
3. type 'make'.
4. type 'make install'.
I got to step 2. I saw several lines informing that "you have..." and "you don't have..." and "you need"
here are the "don't have's" and "needs":
You don't have inet_aton()
You don't have <linux/blkpg.h>
You don't have <linux/kd.h>
You don't have --NR_pivot_root
You need <linux/tqueue.h>
There was a message"Assuming that you want to enable nls support, (Otherwise, edit defines.h and remove the line with ENABLE_NLS")
And another message: "Your rpcgen output does not compile".

Can anyone tell me what this all means?
Should I continue with steps 3 and 4, or should I go looking for something?
What is nls support?
What is the problem with rpcgen compile?

U can check dependencies by searching
util-linux-2.11b-3 RPM for i386(RedHat):
pam >= 0.66-5

util-linux-2.10o-6mdk RPM for i586 (Mandrake):

Even if u dont install the Rpm, u can know what dependencies must be satisfied before it can be compiled/made.
Other suggestions would be checking for availablility of the development packages kernel-2.4-dev ,egcs-dev, glibc-dev, or going tru the motions, meaning install kernel-2.4 source (unpack, read the ../Documents part on dependancies) compile and make a kernel to be sure all dependancies on that part are satisfied.
